An interpretation of website hosting

The most elemental and frequently utilized sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It represents a way to host your website without having to understand much about programming and handling a server. Moreover, it's also the most inexpensive form of site hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. However, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared web space hosting solution is a type of service where many clients share the reserves of one and the same hosting server. This means that all hosting server components like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that same server. This is normally rendered possible by opening different accounts for the separate users and setting some limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are assigned so as to restrain the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Normally, shared web site hosting clients do not have full root access to the server's config files, which basically indicates that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server apart from their own shared hosting account. The web site hosting resources that each account may use are set by the hosting vendor that possesses the web server and by the given web site hosting plan. That leads to the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting web servers divided among the users?

Web hosting firms that deliver shared website hosting services normally have various web hosting packages. Those packages offer diverse quotas of site hosting resources and specs, which actually fix the restrictions that a web hosting plan will have. The user may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The website hosting plan will then define what restrictions the user's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the features of the website hosting packages are specified by the particular web hosting company. Based on the policy of the provider, the shared web hosting solution falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the common shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to announce, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they really are determined by the marketing tactics of the given vendor and, of course, the demands of the given client.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the classic shared web hosting service?

Of course, the major difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they provide. Free web space hosting corporations are not able to maintain a large number of web servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more users on a single hosting server by reducing the amount of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the web hosting servers are supervised and tackled appropriately, because the large amount of accounts may causer the web server to crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free web hosting distributors, however, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite difficult to find a free of cost web site hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting providers typically provide free customer support even to the free hosting customers, since they want their sites to expand so that they subsequently migrate to a paid site hosting package, which offers more web site hosting resources. One such corporation, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and oldest free site hosting companies in the world.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting firms such as NTC Hosting, for example, are able to maintain numerous hosting servers and hence, they are able to provide much more powerful hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a hosting package, however, does not necessarily mean that this account has a finer quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the real service which you're receiving. The best site hosting firms that have been around for quite a while are showing their price tags and package features in an objective manner, so that the client may acquainted with what in fact he is receiving. Moreover, some of them give a free bonus with the hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of gratis templates that are supplied by 'NTC Hosting'. Such site hosting suppliers do worry about their good name and this is the reason why if you choose them, you can be confident that you won't get beguiled into paying for a solution that you cannot actually use.

What should I anticipate from a shared web space hosting solution?

The shared webspace hosting service is best for individuals who desire to host an average site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared site hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business develops, your site will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich web site hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a web site hosting vendor, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up moving your domain name manually to a separate provider, which can bring about site predicaments and even continued downtime for your web site. Therefore, going with a hosting provider such as 'NTC Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will spare you a lot of complications in the future.
